Greetings everyone. My name is Steve Dildine, and I am Outside Walla Walla’s President of Research & Discovery. Thank you for taking a moment out of your busy day to learn more about me and what I do for the website.
I was not always a trail enthusiast. There, I said it. I grew up near the base of Mount Rainier in a small, somewhat rural town. Although I did enjoy family camping trips and summers spent at my grandparents property roaming dense, westside forests, my passion was sport. I spent the bulk of my youth on two wheels. BMX racing and building backyard dirt jumps garnered most of my time. This skill has come in handy recently as I jump over the kids on my mountain bike. When not on a bike, I played baseball and a few other miscellaneous sports.
